B. Doing crunches only for your core will sooner or later have you standing tall like a boomerang. You have to work your other core muscles; oblique and lower back muscles. Creating an imbalance by just working your abdominals can actually injure your spine.

C. Go slow. It's not that type of "crunch time". Taking your time helps ensure you're using the right muscles. Additionally, your core muscles are mostly made up of slow twitch muscle fibers, which mean they are made for endurance. Taking controlled breaths will maximize your endurance potential.
